Naples News: Construction Defect Forces Relocation of High School Classes

Following the investigation and report from a construction expert and industrial hygienist, several modular buildings at a Florida high school were closed due to water intrusion resulting from “latent construction defects.”

It was a new year and a different school for Seacrest Country Day School high school students.

The Upper School Village, as the portion of the campus is known, was evacuated in January after staff discovered water damage on some of the modular units that comprise a portion of the high school.

?It was a latent construction defect that caused water damage,? said Helen Ruisi, chief financial officer at Seacrest.

As a result, the students were moved and now school officials said they are considering a new direction for the high school campus.
